Question

A particle moving with velocity equal to 0.4 m/s is subjected to an acceleration of  0.15 m/s2 for 2 sec in a direction at right angle to its direction of motion. What is the magnitude of resultant velocity?

Solution

Correct option is

0.5 m/s

 

In vector from, 1st equation of motion is

                     

Here u = 0.4 m/s; a = 0.15 m/s2= 2s and
